Mr. Speaker, planting billions of trees is not the solution here.
Just yesterday, the government was asking New Brunswick to abandon the Maritime Iron plant project. The government was worried that this project would prevent us from meeting our greenhouse gas reduction targets. My question today is exactly the same, but this time it is about Teck Frontier in Alberta. This company produces even more pollution, with at least four million tonnes of greenhouse gases per year for 40 years. I do not think the Prime Minister needs an environmental assessment to make this decision.
Will he step up and put an end to this project and its pollution?
